What the Employer Job Offer stream is about

Through the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream, immigrant employees with a job opportunity in a skilled profession can register to reside and work permanently in Ontario. Your job offer needs to be for a skilled job at level A or level B of the National Occupational Classification (NOC). This stream is open to foreign workers both inside and outside of Canada.

You should first enroll in the OINP’s Expression of Interest System and request an invitation to apply prior to filing an online form to be recommended for permanent residency by the Ontario government.

Once recommended, candidates must make an application to the federal government through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in order to be evaluated under the Employer Job Offer stream. They receive permanent residency since they were chosen.

Application specifications:

  • A profile for expressing interest and a request to apply
  • work history, a license, or another type of authorization
  • Valid identification or another legal right (if applicable)
  • An expressed desire to reside in Ontario Status as a Canadian citizen (if applicable)

Ontario released the results of the most recent Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw on June 29. The large majority of Canadian provinces and territories have their own PNPs, with the exception of Quebec and Nunavut.
